    Just based on the thread title, I might have guessed white trash.

    So what? Why arrest her for that? Are we going to also ban piercing kids' ears now? What about circumcision?

    It's not like it was a gang tattoo. He got it to remember his dead brother. Has context become entirely irrelevant in our society?

    Agreed. I'd understand if it was a white family but we gotta go easy on the coloreds.

    Again, Cobb County = Shwoogieland. Anything and everything coming out of that Festering Abscess part of the world either has to do with Depression, Apathy, Violence, or something awful. Those are it's chief exports.

    There are other and better ways to remember the life of a dead sibling.

    Not when there are laws and OH MY GOD THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!! The dude who inked the kid is going to be honing his craft with a ball point pen and a sewing needle for a couple years, those yokel bible thumpers are going to set up a witch hunt for the artist.

    Holy shit, mark the calendar, I agree with something BB posted.

    That's true. They should've just put one of those "In Memory Of..." window stickers on their car instead. Does anyone else find those things as reprehensible as I do?

    :haha7:

    So they're naming their kids after the gutteral sound they make when pushing their little offspring through the birth canal?
    :haha7:

    I agree, but I think 10 is a bit too young for something permanent like that. But what do I know, here in California you can't even let your kid go to a tanning booth anymore, even with parental consent.

    Look, I'm not saying it's a smart thing, or even that it should be legal, bur arresting the mother? This is a perfect example of a case where the tattoo artist should be fined and/or get his license suspended/revoked (if you even need a license for that shit). If we're now arresting parents for stupid decisions, then why are all those people who don't vaccinate their children running free? The reaction just strikes me as a bit excessive. Tattoos can be removed, you know.

    Why should the tattoo artist get in trouble if he had the parent's permission? I agree that it's a bit excessive to arrest her, but if it's against the law to tattoo a kid that young, how do you hold her accountable? A civil judgement? :haha7:

    Edit:
    It looks like Georgia doesn't even allow it with parental consent unless it's by a doctor, so it looks like the artist is fucked now.

    Arresting the mother does seem excessive. But some times when people lack basic common sense, you have to knock it into them. The people who don't get their kids vaccinated should fall under the same category.

    I agree about the tattoo artist having his license revoked. Since there is a health risk with tattoos, I think the artists are required to have licenses.

    As for having the tattoo removed, from what I can understand that's no walk in park. Then there is the question of who is going to pay for it.

    I find the tattoo guy more culpable than the mother, assuming that tattooing a 10-year-old is illegal. All the mother did here was make a stupid decision. If it isn't illegal, then why arrest the mother?

    Yeah, I'm kind of ambivalent about this, I guess. One of those cases where I'm not entirely sure how I feel.

    Exactly, the guy tattooing could have easily said "No thanks" and that would have been the end of it. Then again there would more than likely be another artist who would think it was a good idea and ink the kid.

    They are required to have licenses, and they get inspected by the health department, at least here in NY. That being said, what makes you think for a second that the person that gave this kid a tattoo had a license? I'd bet 50:1 the person that did it wasn't licensed in any way.

    I'm pretty confident that the guy doesn't have a license.
